The United Kingdom will provide ammunition that contains depleted uranium to Ukraine.

Baroness Annabel Goldie, Minister of State at the UK Ministry of Defense, said this in a statement in response to the question from Lord Hylton, a member of the House of Lords.

“Alongside our granting of a squadron of Challenger 2 main battle tanks to Ukraine, we will be providing ammunition including armor piercing rounds which contain depleted uranium,” Goldie said.

UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak said at a joint press conference with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in February that British-made Challenger 2 tanks, due to be delivered to Ukraine in March, would change the situation on the battlefield.
